Americas Sales for the Week Ending November 29, 2008

50°
302w ago - Black Friday sales for the video game industry were excellent. Nintendo sold 1.8m systems for the week ending November 29 while machines from rivals Microsoft and Sony combined to sell about 1.1m units.

Software sales were quite strong as well, but the vast majority of the spike this week is simply from the fact that Americans spent $10 billion ($30/per American if every American shopped) on Black Friday according to various reports, and a lot of that went to video games.

Last year, Black Friday week sales were strong as well, but Wii, DS, and Xbox 360 saw significantly better sales this year. PS3 had the weakest Black Friday to Black Friday growth, at 13%, and PS2 declined.

Sony's machines accounted for about 1 out of 3 video game machines sold (31%) during Black Friday week in 2007, this year that ratio is down to about 2 out of 9 (22%) as the shares for Microsoft and Nintendo increase.

Although Wii had a smaller percentage increase, it increased almost as much as DS did in raw units sold (470,000 vs. 610,000). Five Xbox 360s sold for every two that sold last week, an impressive increase.

PSP had a percentage increase almost as great as PS2, and DS in percentage, but it was only about a 170,000 unit increase. PS2 and PS3 each saw increases of almost 100,000 units...
 

Global PlayStation 3 Releases for the Week of November 30, 2008

100°
303w ago - This week marks the end of the brutal end-of-year release period. We're ending on a high note with Prince of Persia's worldwide release.

We've been looking forward to this one for quite some time, so hopefully it'll live up to expectations. Here's the full release list:

US Games
• SingStar ABBA
• Prince of Persia (free Limited Edition upgrade)

EU Games
• Prince of Persia
• Brain Challenge

Asian Games
• Brain Challenge
• Prince of Persia
• Pro Yakyuu Spirits 5 Kanzenban
• Saints Row 2

PS3 games are region free, so go ahead and import any games you fancy. Try to keep in mind, however, that DLC is always region locked. So your US game will only read content downloaded from the US PSN Store.

Finally, Prince of Persia has been confirmed to have DLC coming in the future. Release dates are constantly subject to change, so check with your local retailer if you have any worries.
